Ten Life Lesson Quotes

Today, I'm having one of those "blah" days when I can't stop yawning or looking at the clock. Despite how much sleep I get, it doesn't seem to be enough. Kyle tells me that you can't catch up on sleep, but that won't stop me from trying! Although I have thoroughly enjoyed spending the last several weeks with family, I am a slight bit excited that we don't have any plans for this weekend. I expect to a) sleep, b) pick up the house, and c) enjoy relaxing with kyle & kins.

So in honor of today & it's blahness, I have gathered together 10 "life lessons" to pick up my mood. I hope it does the same for you..

{one} When you're in a hole, stop digging. -My Dad
{two} Hold onto memories because unlike people, they never change. -Unknown
{three} Expecting life to treat you well because you're a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge you because you're a vegetarian. -Unknown
{four} We must see things how they are, not how we hope, wish, or expect them to be. -Unknown
{five} There's always some truth behind 'just kidding.' Knowledge behind 'I don't know.' Emotion behind 'I don't care.' Pain behind 'It's OK.' -Unknown
{six} I want to learn about the world. I want to surprise myself. I want to be important. I want to be the best person I can be. I want to define myself, instead of having others define me. I want to win and have people be happy for me. I want to lose and get over it. I want to not be afraid of the unknown. I want to grow up to be generous and big-hearted, the way that people have been with me. I want an interesting and surprising life. It’s not that I think I’m going to get all these things. I just want the possibility of getting them. College represents possibility. The possibility that things are going to change, and I can’t wait. -Tyra Collette (Friday Night Lights)
{seven} The world’s a playground. You know that when you’re a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it. -Jim Carey (Yes Man)
{eight} When writing the story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen. -Unknown
{nine} Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. -Robert Brault

and last but most certainly not least....
{ten} What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday? -Unknown

Until Next Time..
Love, Jen
